Following our transport roundup, we wanted to dedicate a post entirely to wedding cars. Arriving in style is not only cool but necessary! Wedding cars have been the most popular wedding transportation choice for quite some time now. That's why choosing the right car for you is so important. Sit back and strap yourself in (pun intended) as we share soft tops, vintage cars and four-wheel drives. The possibilities are endless.
Wedding cars continue to be the no. 1 choice for wedding transport - but which one will you choose?
Vintage Wedding Cars
Starting things off, we've got vintage wedding cars. Hiring a vintage car creates an incredibly charming entrance. They're the total package! A great symbol of a marriage ceremony, elegant looking, and creates an ever-lasting glamour to your wedding pictures. They offer more comfort than a modern car as they have very soft upholstery. Who knew you could travel in style and comfort?? (Hint: we did!) Luisa & Stuart's blue and cream vintage car exemplifies this perfectly! Obsessed.
Rolls-Royce Wedding Cars
When thinking about wedding cars, Rolls-Royce often springs to mind first. They hold a reputation for being super trustworthy, with little chance of breaking down. Rolls-Royces are known to be the ultimate wedding car. Your entrance will pulse with grandeur and style, whatever model or colour you choose. Who doesn't want that? Not to mention that these cars are quite low to the ground. So, if you've decided to wear a princess wedding dress, it eases the entering and exiting process plentifully. Woohoo! Annie & Emma's entrance in the dazzling white Rolls-Royce was simply to die for.
Classic Wedding Cars
If your wedding has a vintage vibe to it, opting for a classic wedding car is a great choice. If you want to arrive in style with a car that has loads of character, pops of colour and an old-timey feel to it, then you're in the right place. To spice up your transport, even more, classic wedding cars look fabulous with some ribbon or fresh flowers. Leanne & Tom's wedding game was very strong with their classic car adorned with floral bumper decorations.
Convertible Wedding Cars
Top-down, thumbs up! Convertible wedding cars have certainly maintained their popularity since being released in the 1920s. Even if the weather has other plans, convertibles are effortlessly cool. There are some things to bear in mind, however. What's the weather going to be like? What is your hair going to look like afterwards? If you've considered these and are still pro-convertible, fantastic! They're a gorgeous summer option and give off serious South of France energy. Joanna & Daniel bathed in sunlight and looked great whilst driving in their black convertible.
VW Beetle Wedding Car
Going for more of a cute, chic theme? Then the VW Beetle is a great choice for you. Adorable, vintage and surprisingly roomy, these wedding cars give a lovely sense of nostalgia with their unique characteristics. Regardless of if you choose a vintage Beetle or a more modern one, this quirky little car will add some dashes of fun to your wedding day. Maryke & John's baby blue VW Beetle wowed the guests and provided much-needed support and comfort throughout the day.
Land Rover Wedding Car
If you're looking to add some edge to your day, then opting for a Land Rover is always a great choice. A more alternative choice, yet it certainly doesn't lose out in comfort. With plush seating and lots of wiggle room, it's as handy as it is cool. Land Rovers will add a touch of edginess to anyone's day, so if that's what you're looking for, then you've found your car! Emma & Seb's entrance in their decorated black Rover exemplifies the gorgeous contrast of a gentle, classic wedding dress next to a more rugged-looking car.
Fiat 500 Wedding Car
Fiat 500's feel as though they've been around for aeons, and for good reason! If you want to make your day memorable and relive La Dolce Vita, then this one's for you. With their quirky body, comfort, and cute-as-a-button vibe, it's no surprise they're so popular. Fiat 500s turn heads without being over-the-top, and their iconic status is guaranteed to add style and personality to your wedding day. Ryanna & Argha's car is exhibit A. Their adorable cream Fiat 500 was adorned with white ribbon and a floral top giving it bundles of personality.

Decorate a Wedding Car
Over the years, wedding car decoration has become more and more popular, and we love to see it. So much so, in fact, that we're going to be dedicating another article to the art of car decoration. For now, though, it gets its own section. Wedding cars alone look great, but with some decorating skills at hand, it can take your big day up a serious notch. The most common decoration on cars is either florals or silk/lace, usually either above the numberplate, the bonnet, or on the roof of the car. They add style and elegance to any car and can be matched with your colour/floral scheme. Winner!
